As Rocket League Turns One, PS4 Remains Its Most Popular Platform
1.1 million people still play daily.
Rocket League is officially one year old, and developer Psyonix has marked the occasion with an infographic running down some of its impressive milestones.
The game has attracted more than 18 million player total, who have taken part in 545 million matches. 6.2 million copies of the game have been sold, with 5.5 million DLC packs to go along with it. PS4 remains the game's top platform--perhaps thanks in part to it launching in July 2015 as a free PlayStation Plus game--with Xbox One and PC both tied. An average of 1.1 million players still play every day.
You can see more facts in the infographic below, including which vehicles and customization items have proven the most popular.
"We debated for quite some time what the best way to show you our gratitude was," Psyonix wrote on its website, "until we realized that the answer was to keep doing what you want us to do--to keep supporting the game with new arenas, new garage items, new game modes, and new DLC; to experiment with more Rocket Labs and to increase our presence in the world of competitive gaming.
"And so that's exactly what we're going to do. We're going to make our next 52 weeks even better than our first. We're going to give you all the things we mentioned above and then we're going to give you some more, because you deserve it. You're our community and you're our friends."
A physical release of Rocket League just recently launched, as did a major update with lots of new content. Meanwhile, Psyonix is prepared to allow PS4 and Xbox One players to play against one another (as they can with those on PC), but that will first require an arrangement between Sony and Microsoft.
